Take the Exam...before the class is finished?

Well, finished the 70-290 Sybex book last night including the chapter exams. Now it's on to review and taking the practice tests. I figure I should be ready to take this exam in 7-10 days tops. But..... (and there's always a but)....

I'm enrolled in a class that is teaching us the 70-290 and there are still about 3-4 weeks to go. I want to pass the test and be done with it so I can move onto the 70-291 but it'll be kind of weird to be in a class teaching me the material I need to know to pass the exam...... when I've already passed the exam.

Anyone else run into something like this before?

    So just pass the test and then go to the beach or something instead of class! Or just soak up the material some more from the class, can't hurt :) Do they do any labs etc? Anything you need to learn more in?

    Not sure about your training situation, but maybe they would let you out of the 290 class and give you a voucher for another class that would be a better use of your time??

    Well, as nice as the beach sounds, I live in Minnesota so that might get a bit chilly this time of year. :) Yes, there is a lot I can learn because the instructor really knows his stuff and he is willing to take extra time with us individually. I mean, I can pass the test by just studying and reading the book but that doesn't translate into applicable knowledge as well as learning from an experienced mentor. :)

    Although I do like the idea of asking for a voucher to another class... I might just do that. Thanks for the idea!

    Whenever I had classes that taught from the certification books, the instructors would always either give you an A for the class or A on the final for passing the certification before the end of class. Back then I was too intimidated by the cert tests and their costs and just took the normal class final.
